'tis the season to be jolly

Hello everyone,

CAS cards aren't my comfort zone.. But this year I really want to try out things outside my comfort zone. I came across these following challenges (click on the images to get to the challenge)



I made the circular mask, and ink stamped the penguin the polar animal from the my favorite things sweet holiday penguins stamp set with the altenew crop jet black ink, masked it with the post it note.

Then added the snow hills by putting the post it mask papers.

Ink bending is what I enjoy the most, the used the pick raspberry, dusty concord and shaded lilac to create the background.

After the blending, colored the penguin with the copic markers.

And finally stamped the sentiments from the Merry Christmas sentiments stamp set by craftyscrappers.

Voila and the card is ready..
Hope you like it.. Please let me know in the comments below.. 😊 😊





Till then happy crafting ❤️❤️❤️

Oh la la in Paris!!

Hello everyone,

I came across a really different challenge at Time out Challenge

Isn't this great... The wardrobe has a lot of stuff and with so many memories of the stuff that we keep collecting over the period of time and one you sniff those, all the memories just start to fade in again... 

With one such thing is my barret from Paris which I got for myself in 2015..😊 😊 

Using the newton's nook stamp set called Newton dreams of Paris, I stamped the images, copic colored them and did such stenciling and pasted the window panel after die cutting..


the Barret and the scarf 🧣 are the items from the wardrobe.. 

Hope you like it, Happy crafting ❤️❤️

Oh deer i love you

Hello everyone,

This month has been quite demanding from the work side, I have been just stealing some time from the jam packed schedule.. Luckily today was off for me and I had to calm my itch to create a card for valentine's..

I wanted to create a not to hearty hearty card and not too many reds and pinks... So I thought I'd create a scene card...

And then I found my neat and tangled oh deer stamp set..

I created a layered card with the dome die cut from MFT on the regular 5.5x4.25 cardstock. Stamped the images from the near and tangled oh deer stamp set abs copic colored them. Then I realized I get to add a lot more elements to add it to the scene. So I used MFT spring friends stamp set and colored them as well..

Added the butterflies from the Lawn fawn butterfly kisses and stamped the hearts from the newton's nook le bonjour. ❤️❤️



I then created the background using clouds stencil and the grass with the distress inks mowed lawn and seedless preserves on the inner layer.. Pasted with the 3D foam tape.. And them time to assemble my elements..




And voila, the love scene card is ready..
Hope you liked it.. Please let me know how you like it in the comments below.. 😊 Happy crafting 😍😍

Sending Fairy Wishes... 🧚‍♂️

Hello everyone,

How's the year for crafting so far?? I have been quite busy with work lately, so do not get much time but i could finally sneak in to my crafting abode today and really had a lot of fun.. 😊 😊


Shaker cards are still my favorite cards.. I can just keep playing with them.. But I really like creating them as well.. 😁 The recipient just loves it... isn't it!!

I decided to use my craftyscrappers pixie stamp set.. The really lovely one indeed..

I stamped my images and copic colored them.


Then it was time to create the background, I love the saturated backgrounds.. I used the MFT Hybrid inks ripe raspberries, wild wisteria and distress ink peacock feather..  And added some water so that the water reactive effect could come out.


I then passed all my elements with the glue stick, made the frame and then pasted the acetate sheet. Added the shaker elements and closed the frame with the double sided foam tape. I added the sentiments Sending Fairy Wishes which is white heat embossed on the black cardstock.



 Hope you liked it 😊 😊

Have a shaker card experience..

Super star DAD

Hello everyone,

A very happy new year to all of you.. January is the month of making resolutions, every day. Be resolution.. I do that.. 😅😅

This month also happens to be my dad's birthday month. What better gift can be than a handmade card.. So I decided to make a masculine card for dad.

I used the simon says stamp star parade die, and stacked it with seven layers. Added glitters on the stars but not too much.. The stars that came out from the negative space were then stenciled using the Chevron stencil using the spun sugar and tumbled glass distress ink.

I also used my MFT thin alphabets to cut out D's and A's to form the DAD by stacking them. I wanted to keep it simple with no stamping..

The thin die cuts looked like this..
It was the time to now assemble them all with the elements and the difficult time was the background cardstock. I tried a number of them till I liked this, kraft cardstock and pasted on the white card base..

Tadaaa...



I hope you liked it.. 😊😊
With this I'm also guest designing at male room challenge.. Here Please head on the link and play the challenge for anything masculine goes..


Happy crafting 🙂🙂

Never stop dreaming

Hello everyone,

There is no age to believe in magic.. Isn't it.. Magic happens everytime may be we just cease to notice it.. Magic does happen.. 😊

I came across this beautiful challenge yesterday.. Click on the image to reach on the challenge page.


Seeing this I was taken back to my childhood days.. The chronicles of Narnia.. Do you remember how the possibilities are endless, but we got to dream to achieve the goal.. 

This reminds me of the Lucy from The Chronicles of Narnia... I decided to create the magic of princess and castle.. I came across a YouTube video of how to create the diorama.. And voila I created this.. 

I had no square tooth die.. So I did all the cutting and measurements by myself.. 
This is a 9.5inch by 4.5 inch cardstock. 




I handcut the towers, added the shades using the pink cardstock. And handcut the edges of the castle and the tower. Then brick stenciled all the cardstock using the MFT Hybrid ink called orange zest. I then die cut the grass and the trees using the MFT scene builder die set from a green textured cardstock and pasted it from wall to wall. 

I stamped the horse and the princess from the once upon a time stamp set and colored it using the Copic markers. I also die cut the pink flowers from the pink cardstock using the lawn fawn border die. 

I then assembled the elements of the castle as shown in the picture. To add detail I added the window with the triangle ledge in the same stenciled cardstock. And made a door using the white cardstock, colored it using the walnut stain distress ink. 

And once it was ready it looked like this.. It can be one third folded and kept in a customized envelope..




I hope you liked it.. ❤️ ❤️ ❤️

CHRISTMAS IS THE BEST HOLIDAY...

Hello everyone,

Christmas is just round the corner and I wanted to create the Christmas card but with a lot of critters depicting how Christmas is special to everyone. While some of us like to sing carols, some like to play around making snowmen or just having fun with our buddies..

A centre picture card would be amazing isn't it!! Giving a lot of dimension and to create multiple scenes.

I started with a the dimensions shared by Maymay cards.. I then cut all the pieces of the card using my we r memory keepers all in one tool and scored it as demonstrated.

Then I created the background scene using the distress inks salty ocean, evergreen borough, peacock feather, faded jeans and mft  hybrid ink cor flower. I blended it out well to I got the desired results.



It was time for critters now, I used my favorites from mft waffle flower and lawn fawn.. I'm in love with these cuties. I copic colored them and fussy cut them to they looked like this. 


Now the time to assemble the card, I made the snow using the hill border die and cloud die by mama elephant with the white cardstock and then pasted at the bottom. I gave some gentle blending of the evergreen borough to add dimension on the snow.

I die cut a lamppost for the critters to give some light while they sing the Christmas carols.

And pasted all the elements together.

On the front I added the silver paper to add the extra bling the card was missing, pasted a little owl clad in the scarf 🧣.

I added the sentiments from the mft stamp set Holiday Penguins both in the inside and outside.

Tadaaa...




I hope you like it.. ❤️ ❤️
